Big bag, 1997

Big bag, 1997
computer, motors, boxes, paper
approx. 220 x 110 x 60 cm

Note / Recycling, duplication and reacting to previous works in a different form is a method that the artist developed at an early stage. Big bag is not only an enlargement of Brown bag from 1995, but also a development due to the fact that Van Warmerdam used a computer-controlled mechanism to make the paper bag rustle and crumple.

Note / In 2005 Austria took over the chair of the European Union, and Van Warmerdam made two posters for billboards to mark the event. She responded to the rotating leadership of the European Union and made a link with the characteristic Austrian landscape; one poster depicted a series of mountains with a horn blowing, the other a series of underpants; one with an erection.
